Glowfrog Assists in Transformative Update of Derby Museums’ Pickford’s House

Derby Museums is embarking on a significant transformation of Pickford’s House, a Grade I listed building dating back to 1770, designed by esteemed architect Joseph Pickford. The museum has been a testament to Georgian era life and fashion since 1988.

Funded by the Department for Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) and The Wolfson Foundation through the DCMS/Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund, the museum is set for a full-scale renovation from spring 2024. The refurbishment will see each room enhanced with new interpretation, displays, and immersive exhibits, aimed at elevating the overall visitor experience and providing new perspectives on the site’s historical significance.

Key to these updates is the contribution from Glowfrog Video Production (www.glowfrogvideo.com), who will be creating a welcome video for the museum pro-bono. This video is designed to engage visitors with the history of the house and cater to disabled guests, ensuring an inclusive experience for all.

Matt Middleton, Director at Glowfrog Video Production, expressed his commitment to the project, saying: “Offering our services pro-bono for Pickford’s House aligns with our core values of supporting local community, and I’m particularly excited about this project given that Pickford’s is a site I’ve visited countless times over the last thirty years or so. It will be fantastic to provide a welcome video for all visitors to the museum, offering a deeper insight into its history and local significance.”

Jennifer Cuadrado, Director of Development at Derby Museums, highlighted the importance of these developments: “These updates represent a significant stride in our mission to make history come alive for our diverse audience. These enhancements, including the welcome video offered by Glowfrog, not only preserve the architectural and cultural legacy of Pickford’s House but also align with our broader mission of making history accessible to diverse audiences.”

Laura Phillips, Head of Interpretation and Display at Derby Museums, also noted: “The meticulous curation of each room at Pickford’s House reflects our commitment to preserving and presenting history in an engaging manner. Glowfrog’s offer to create an inclusive experience through the welcome video resonates with our vision of making the museum accessible to all.”

In recognition of their contribution, Derby Museums encourages exploration of Glowfrog Video Production’s services on their website at www.glowfrogvideo.com.
